9780753518083: The Kop: Liverpool's Twelfth Man

'When The Kop is roaring it really is like having a twelfth man out there on the pitch. They're the best fans in the country - by miles' - Jamie Carragher. The Spion Kop is one of the most famous, emotive and atmospheric vantage points in all of sport. The one-time terracing that could 'suck the ball into the net' - in Bill Shankly's immortal phrase - still inspires and intimidates today. Once the home of more than 25,000 swaying, singing, standing Kopites, it's now seated and can hold merely half that number, but its magic still remains.In this fully revised and updated edition, Stephen F Kelly uses eyewitness testimonies from Kopites, policemen, cleaners and referees as well as newspaper reports and the recollections of players and managers to trace the history of this amazing and fascinating stand - each anecdote wonderfully evoking the spirit of the changing times the Kop has experienced. Stirring, emotional and marvellously readable, "The Kop" is a must for any Liverpool fan and anyone interested in what it means to be a supporter of any football club.
